In the spirit of TMTOWTDI, here's another way of doing it, which only needs to make one localtime call. Of course, you also have to store around a little extra data (the months), but it's probably worth it. More descriptive variable names are always helpful too, of course. :)
my($hour, $mday, $mon, $year) = (localtime)[2..5]; my @months = qw/jan feb mar apr may jun jul aug sep oct nov dec/; $mday-- if $hour < 9; printf "Location: +/%04d%02d%02d.html\n\n", $year%100, $months[$mon], $year+1900, $mon+1, $mday;
(By the way: when posting code you should use the <code> tags so that your code looks, well, like code. Read more in Perl Monk Procedures.)
